Foresters' Arms / Napoleons Rest, Great Jackson Street

Foresters' Arms, Great Jackson Street, Hulme. (c) Thomas F Dalson in Bob Potts [1].

The Foresters' Arms at No.26 Great Jackson Street was formerly the Napoleons Rest, opening in 1858 [2]. The Foresters', pictured above in 1912, closed in 1928 having been owned by Stopford's Brewery [1].  The Foresters' was just three doors down from the Lord Napier, a pub which lasted much longer, until 1986.  Great Jackson Street still runs off Chester Road through Hulme today.
